Middle School

The middle school offers a small, community-learning environment and a nurturing setting during a time of great personal transition. Students are encouraged to think for themselves, test their assumptions and develop sound learning skills, setting the stage for high school success. Our holistic curriculum includes not only rigorous academics, but also essential life and leadership skills. For students who need additional academic support, we offer EMC and SOAR courses providing math and English assistance as well as help with executive functioning skills. Our middle school students enjoy a smooth and successful transition to the high school.

High School

In high school, the academic focus is on preparation for college and beyond, with a challenging curriculum and many opportunities to develop leadership skills that will serve students throughout their lives. All students are offered extensive college counseling services and 99 percent of EC High School program students matriculate to a four-year college program (2023).

The program includes a seven-class academic schedule with additional, optional classes offered outside of the regular school day. Students may also choose to expand their learning through electives, including AP, honors and UW in the High School (UWHS) courses, or areas of personal interest, such as the arts, computer science, robotics, marketing, accounting, journalism and more.
